There's no television in the cottage, as we don't have cable and we stream shows from the internet. Works well for us! Happy to include access to Netflix and HULU Plus included, upon request.
The cottage is only used as a rental, so we don't have any of our own personal items in there that you have to work around. It has a separate side entrance. It is on the side of our property, not attached to our house. You can come and go as you please.
We have a portable crib and an air mattress if you need to use them.

The neighborhood is quiet and safe. It is hip and the people here are dynamic. There is a beautiful shopping mall just a few blocks from the cottage. Also there are several grocery stores nearby with really great products. It is so fun to browse and find new things.
San Mateo has a great downtown with a movie theater and great restaurants.
The city of Burlingame is the city north of us. Drive there in 10 minutes and stroll their wonderful downtown. It's one of my favorite places to spend an afternoon.

Great location! Spacious, comfortable, very clean. Everything there what you need for a nice stay. Even if I didn't meet Mandy and Mark personally it was was perfectly organized. Got alot of descriptions of every detail of the cottage like for the air conditioner and very immediately response when I had any questions. Perfect stay!
Mandy and her husband Mark are two fantastic hosts, friendly and helpful! They helped us a lot during our trip with a lot of (email hidden)ey've been very nice!
Their cottage is perfect: very well equipped (washer, dryer and everything you need in the kitchen), very well-decorated (great job, Mandy!), spacious, bright and comfortable, with hardwood floors and a shower with rain head and body jets.
The cottage was very private and we could come and go as we pleased.
The neighborhood is quiet and safe, with a church on the corner and an elementary school across the street, but near to restaurants and shopping center. Walking distance to Cal Train (to San Francisco or San Jose) and near to everything you need! Easy parking area, easy check-in, easy check-out!
Love this place!!!We really enjoyed our time there and would definitely recommend it!
Dear prospective buyer,
To be perfectly honest, I don't want to tell you about it. You'll only book it when I really just want to stay there every time I return; however, I'll do my part to help you along.
Mandy's space was absolutely beautiful. Not only was it cozy and comfortable, but it was well organized and private. I personally believe that the images that were taken doesn't do the cottage justice. It had lots of natural light to fill the space, skylights that make you believe that you left the light switch on. They are place precisely to bring brightness to the bathroom and kitchen.
This was my first trip to San Mateo, the neighborhood is safe and quite and offers lots of street parking. Mandy was very friendly and responsive via text and email. She offered a directory of directions to the surrounding venues. The space is completely accommodating for two or more people based on accommodation specifications. Mandy's space is well connected to Buses and the freeway.
Pro: Bathroom is amazing (rain head-spray jets)
Laundry room/cleaning products
Decor and library selection (nice books)
Con: I couldn't pack the place up to travel with it, nor could I stay longer.
I would stay there again if it's available during a return visit.
This was our first experience with airbnb and it was great! Mandy provided clear directions to check-in via e-mail prior to our arrival. The cottage was perfect… clean, comfortable and well-decorated with everything you need to make you feel like home. Mandy greeted us and offered her assistance if we had any questions. We stayed for 3 days and the night before our departure Mandy provided directions for check-out as well. We highly recommend Mandy’s cottage.
My parents stayed here when visiting. The cottage was perfect. It was clean, well-equipped, in a quiet neighborhood, and private. The washer / dryer was a nice bonus too. We never met Mandy in person but she provided clear directions for check-in/check-out via email, and she even proactively sent an email during the stay to see if we needed anything. Mandy and Mark provided their cell phone numbers as well. All in all, a great place and great hosts.
My parents stayed here for one week. Mandy did a great job making the cottage like a home. The place has everything you'll ever need, even for a longer stay. The manual for facilities was very clear and helpful, as well as the check-in instructions.
The community is super quite and safe (an elementary school across the street and a church just around the corner). My parents had a great time here. Thanks Mandy!
